Why This Gold Miner Has Considerably Outperformed The Sector Since 2008

New Gold (NGD) and its world class gold/copper project El Morro partnered with mining titan Goldcorp (GG) has decided to commence construction of one of the world’s largest gold-copper projects after the Chilean winter. Quoting Randall Oliphant, Chairman of NGD, “”Our 30 percent interest in El Morro positions us very well as we have a meaningful share of this great project, with a proven mine developer and  operator as a partner and a favorable financing arrangement that carries us through production.” China is easing financial and fiscal policies for at least the first 6 months of this year.  This action is letting the world financial markets know that carefully chosen mining equities are […]

RISK OFF Trades hitting the Commodity Sector

RISK OFF Trades hitting the Commodity Sector

Investors/traders are growing increasingly concerned about an overall global economic slowdown. This morning’s Retail Sales number had temporarily cheered them with higher equities coming in on that news but then the fall of the NAHB housing market index (the first in seven months I might add) soured them rather quickly and led to increased selling pressure being seen in the broader equity markets as well as the commodity complex. Even gasoline has thus far not been immune to the pressure. The result of this has seen the CCI moving back towards the critical low made late last year. You might recall that as the year 2011 wound down, many speculators […]

Are Gold Stock Fundamentals Still Bullish?

Are Gold Stock Fundamentals Still Bullish?

In the face of a correction or poor price action, we’ll often hear analysts proclaim the bullish fundamentals of precious metals. While this is true on a structural and secular basis, it doesn’t mean the market always advances every year or two. We’ve written about the wall of worry phase and how progress in the second third of a bull market is limited. The HUI hasn’t made any net progress in the past four and a half years. It has actually made only limited progress since 2006! Furthermore, the typical corrections in this sector are wicked. Corrections of 25% are routine and happen several times per year. As we noted […]

The Inter-market Correlations May Prove Insightful for Silver and Gold Investors

The Inter-market Correlations May Prove Insightful for Silver and Gold Investors

Tuesday marked the worst day of the year for U.S. markets. Stocks fell amid anxiety ahead of earnings season and rising bond yields for Spain and Italy, along with sharp losses for those markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Averageclosed down 213.66 points, or 1.7%, resulting in a five-session losing streak. That’s the longest such run of losses since August. It was also the biggest one-day point and percentage drop for the index since Nov. 23. But Wednesday, U.S. stocks rose sharply after an extended losing run as Spanish and Italian bond yields fell. How do these sometime seismic movements in the stock markets affect the precious metals markets? You might […]

Silver Miners Building for Breakout

The health of the U.S. economy may not be quite as robust as some government statistics indicate and more stimulus could be on the way, despite what the Fed may be saying. Regardless of which way the economy goes, Chris Marchese, contributor to The Morgan Report, tells us in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report that precious metals will go higher as investors seek protection from the effects of monetary policies that don’t work. In the process, he expects that greatly undervalued mining shares of silver producers will again shine in the eyes of investors and highlights several of his favorites at current bargain prices. Companies mentioned: ALEXCO RESOURCE CORP. – AURCANA CORPORATION – BEAR […]

Gold Equities Gaining Credibility

While gold equities continue to trail the gold price, junior stocks are gaining traction according to Doug Groh, co-portfolio manager and senior analyst with Tocqueville Asset Management. He believes investors should not let the market’s risk aversion keep them out of a stock picker’s market. The trick, Groh reveals in this exclusiveGold Report interview, is to pick managements, not jurisdictions. Companies mentioned: ABZU GOLD LTD. – ATAC RESOURCES LTD. – BEAR CREEK MINING CORP. –DETOUR GOLD CORP. – GOLD RESOURCE CORPORATION – OSISKO MINING CORP. – RANDGOLD RESOURCES LTD. The Gold Report: Doug, macro factors like the European sovereign debt situation, U.S. monetary policy and an economic slowdown in China drove the markets in 2011, […]

How to play the gold mining sector – Podcast

In this podcast, Brent Cook, geologist and writer of Exploration Insights, and the GoldMoney Foundation‘s Dominic Frisby talk about the current state of the gold mining sector and how to invest in it. Cook thinks that many investors buy junior mining stocks as play on physical gold – though these are very different markets. Many companies haven’t delivered on overly-optimistic profit projections, and the market has been heading lower since the optimism highs of late 2010. As profitable, high profit margin companies have got trashed along with more speculative stocks in this downturn, Cook believes that there are some fantastic investment opportunities right now, which could pull money back into this sector.

Failed Bottom in Gold Stocks Initiates Start of Capitulation

Failed Bottom in Gold Stocks Initiates Start of Capitulation

It was only a week ago we felt the gold stocks had a great chance of putting in a bottom. Monday supported our thesis but after Tuesday’s action and Bernanke’s jawboning it was apparent that the gold shares were in for a very difficult period. We immediately went long DUST to hedge long positions and trimmed some of our most vulnerable positions. We aren’t day traders personally or professionally (in our service) but sometimes you have to be considering the day to day volatility in this sector. Having accounted for the short-term, the next move is to gameplan for a potential major bottom in the sector. Below we show the […]
